Coastal City Ballet's world premiere of Hansel and Gretel brings a playful and charming spirit to the Grimm's storybook classic.
Perfect for families and children of all ages, Coastal City Ballet's full-length version of the cautionary tale features an imaginative set, fantastical costumes, and the hauntingly beautiful music of Engelbert Humperdink's celebrated opera.
With delightful choreography by Irene Schneider, former artistic director of Germany's Magdeburg Ballet, the classical production tells the infamous story of the brother and sister-duo who get lost in the woods and stumble upon a delectable house house made of gingerbread. Hansel and Gretel are soon helping themselves, unaware they are falling straight into a trap set by the fabled Wicked Witch...
Coastal City Ballet dancers, and local ballet students from throughout the Lower Mainland, bring the fairytale to life, capturing a world of enchantment that is sure to please the young and young at heart.
